Key Mappings

Most of the original CHIP8 games are programmed for a keyboard with the
following layout:

1 2 3 C
4 5 6 D
7 8 9 E
A 0 B F

This is emulated as follows:

1,2,3,4,q,w,e,r, - CHIP8 keypad



Joystick - (MSX and ADAM only) 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9
Fire buttons - (MSX and ADAM only) 5
Keypads - (ADAM only) 1,2,3, 4,5,6, 7,8,9, A,0,B

Special Keys:

F1 (MSX,MS-DOS,Amiga) / - Reset virtual machine
ESC - Quit emulator (Also F10 on MS-DOS version)

Command line options*

-h - Print a help page describing the available options
-ip < value > - Select number of opcodes per interrupt [15 or 16]
Increase this value to run your games faster, decrease
it to run them slower
-up < value > - Select number of interrupts per screen update (MSX and
ADAM only) [1]
-bg < filename > - Select background picture to load (MSX and ADAM only)
The background picture is simply a dump of the VRAM:
Pattern table is at location $0000, the colour table
is at $1800
-s < mode > - Select synchronisation mode [1]
0 - Do not synchronise emulation
1 - Synchronise emulation to hardware clock
Using -sync 0 will speed up the emulation

* The Amiga version uses the standard Amiga argument parser instead, so try "v8 Help" to get it, or "v8 ?" for an argument template.
